Book Review: Reverence (The Excess #2) by Angelica Chase

Synopsis

Devin 
I was a prick, but I never hurt anyone that didn’t deserve it.
Well … until Nina.
I was a very smart man who made a very bad decision, but the mistakes I was paying for were not just my own.
My behavior toward her, no matter how unforgivable, had always been about protecting her—from me, from my wife, and from the long line of mistakes I would never be able to rectify.
Nina was finally done with me, and I knew it was for the best. I could finally keep her safe from depraved people like me. I needed her as far removed from the situation as possible. I tried to force myself to be content with her decision to move on … until I found out whom she was moving on with.

Nina 
My unyielding love for a corrupt man might have cost me the affection of someone worthy.
With Aiden, I had finally discovered a version of myself I could tolerate; then he dropped a one word bomb that ruined my new sense of self. Instead of listening to my voice of reason, I blocked it out, until it became a scream that refused to be ignored.
Now, I would give anything to quiet that voice.

If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic and extremely explicit sex, cheating, immoral behavior, dysfunction or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable this is not the series for you. FILTHY EROTIC ROMANCE

5StarReview

This book starts where the last one ends but it also gives us some back story. This one has duo POVs and we get to see and hear from Devin.  He admits that he was a jerk to Nina and that she deserves better than him.

Devin “I was a prick, but I never hurt anyone that didn’t deserve it. “”Well … until Nina.”
There are things we as the reader still don’t know or understand yet because Devin says he has always tried to protect her from me, from my wife, and from the long line of mistakes I would never be able to rectify.
 
Devin tries to accept that Nina was finally done with him, until he found out whom she was moving on with.
Nina found someone worthy with Aiden but her unyielding love for Devin might have cost her.
 
Nina discovers that with Aiden she finally discovered a version of herself that she actually liked. Nina asked a simple question and Aiden’s answer rocked her world. She didn’t want to believe it was true so she let me be and everything came crashing down around her.
 
OMG I love this book more than the first one. I loved hearing Devin’s side of the story. But now I am on the fence of who I see Nina with and who is best for her. I think Devin has done some horrible things but truly care and loves Nina and I know Nina loves him and can’t say no to him. So she stays away as best she can and then next Aiden who was so sweet and loving with her. But there is something else there that I am not sure of yet. There is so much more to this story and we have to wait for book 3 Hinderance. I can’t wait! I want to figure this out and finally decide who I am rooting for in this story. Will it be Aiden or Devin who will hold Nina’s heart. This one ends kind of cliffy and I can’t wait to see what will happen next. I love this story. I am so hooked. Please bring on book 3 ASAP! This is a must read and I just want poor Nina to discover who truly holds her heart and will lead her to her HEA.
